Be The Match Panel Event featuring Dr. Harris

Over the last year we have all come to realize that caring for each other is vitally important. One real, tangible, and often-overlooked way to help someone else is to participate in a bone marrow registry. Filling out a bit of paperwork and doing a cheek swab might the difference between life and death for a stranger you’ve never met.

If you’re interested in learning more, join outstanding sociology professor, Dr. Alexes Harris on Monday, April 26th at 5pm for a discussion about cures for cancer and what you can do to join the fight. Here’s the Zoom link.

The Whole U invites you, your family, and friends to join us for an evening panel with Be The Match – an education, research and advocacy organization managing the world’s largest marrow registry. 

This registry is essential to connecting people living with life-threatening blood diseases and cancers, to life-saving donors—like YOU! 

A cure to cancer exists, but matches are needed on the registry from all of us. Growing and diversifying the registry is essential to saving lives, and The University of Washington is committed to diversifying the donor list so that all people have an equal opportunity to find a cure. 
In this spirit, we hope you will come together with us on Zoom for an engaging panel event where you will:

– Learn about Be The Match, marrow registries, & how this life-saving cure works.
– Hear personal stories from a cancer survivor, a marrow donor, and from someone looking for his match and cure to cancer right now.
– Learn about the racial inequities on the donor list and why it’s more important than ever for BIPOC and mixed-race people to join the registry.
 
This event is on Monday, April 26 at 5:00 p.m. Don’t miss this Zoom.
